A hunger strike ends in violence when police fired rubber bullets, tear gas, and water canons at a protest by garment factory workers in Bangladesh this past week. The raid may have ended the 11-day strike but the fight continues on and protestors are still demanding changes from the factory. After not receiving owed salary, overtime, or a bonus for three months, the workers have been protesting to change the working conditions.
